So vietnamese centipede vs Chinese red head. So the difference is sp? Color forms? Both are scolopendra subspinipes right?
I'm not the most experienced when it comes to pedes, but I have owned some S. dehaani color variants. So I can show you them, but as for explaining pedes in general, someone else can probably explain it much more clearly or better overall.Lmao well thats both insightful and confusing
Humidity is really not that relevant as long as you provide moist substrate. I only have the S. dehaani Orange Leg left as I lost my normal S. dehaani due to an escape (lesson learned) and the S. dehaani Red Leg was sold off. But in general, I keep them all the same and they're very hardy as long as they moist substrate to burrow.That offers a little insight ty for the response and piks. Do u treat them all the same humidity wise???
They're not cheaper. You just get a smaller centipede with a less potent venom. Better for beginners. Go in the classifieds. You'll find some.Not to change the subject, but anyone have experience with Scolopendra Polymorpha? Native American species tend to be cheaper and easier to come by, although not as epic looking.
Coconut coir can cause impactions. I like a mixture of sand and black forest dirt because it holds moisture and allows the centipede to burrow without the substrate collapsing. Plus, no risk of any digestive blockages if the food gets dirt on it.I keep my dehaani on moist coco coir holds moisture really well & as previously stated it’s critical To maintain that.
That is absolutely not true. I know people who've kept pedes on coco coir for a long time and people who've used them for years without problems. That's a myth that coco coir/fiber can cause impactions for pedes.Coconut coir can cause impactions.

No.I've heard that species is communal. Have you tried having a colony yet?
In times like these, it's never a bad idea to buy more centipedesNo.
My understanding is that they need to be raised together rather than introduced. I didnt realise they could be raised this way until after I had got mine, otherwise I would have ordered a couple more.
Scolopendra dehaani "Orange Leg Color Variant" - (Not too sure of the locality of this one either)
